Cardboard Creations

— by Andy Wade —

Thinking out of the box? How about tearing the box apart and using it for something completely different? Sometimes what we need to move forward is to look at existing materials in a whole new way. That’s what Israeli inventor Izhar Gafni has done, re-purposing cardboard in a totally new and imaginative way to come up with the cardboard bicycle. I wonder what’s next, a box-car?

If their target price proves out, these gems will sell for $20 – that’s right, $20! That would make cheap transportation for folks on the edge possible. And for those of you wondering what will happen when it rains, these bikes are waterproof, fireproof, and sturdy!
